SAE 12L14 low carbon steel is a resulfurized and rephosphorized carbon steel alloy. The added phosphorus increases the yield point and strength of the material, and the increased sulfur improves machinability. The benefits of 12L14 include good machinability due to the increased levels of lead.
Its tensile strength ranges from 70,000 to 80,000 pounds per square inch and its yield strength ranges from 65,000 to 75,000 pounds per square inch. Common applications of 12L14 include fittings for hydraulic systems, bushings, and high-speed machine applications. E.J. Basler offers precision 12L14 machined parts with superior quality, tolerances, and surface finish.
